New Assassin's Creed clip features a carriage chase, horses, swashbuckling



December 21st is fast approaching, which means the marketing for the Assassin's Creed film is in full effect. In the last week we've seen a clip featuring the souped-up Animus as well as the launch of an Assassin's Creed VR experience, which you can do at home or at six participating theaters.

The other day, another clip from Assassin's Creed was released. This one features Callum (Michael Fassbender) chasing after a carriage. Give it a watch below.

This all looks pretty promising, with some daring leaps and wood 'splosions. The clip seems a little truncated, though, since the scene begins and ends so abruptly; not quite enough time to let all the action breathe. I assume this is just a tease and that the actual chase is longer in the finished film.

Regardless, I like what I see. The practical effects and real-life stuntwork help ground the action, adding some visceral danger to every leap and every landing. All the while, director Justin Kurzel drapes the images in a haze of dust and grime. Will Assassin's Creed be a genuinely great video game movie?

What do you think of this clip? Did you ever want a horse growing up? Or a pony? Let us know in the comments.
